Birthdays, don't you just love 'em? It's the day that you became a part of this lifetime. Let me share that today is mine.
Yeah, Happy Birthday to me and all others that were born on this day. Mine has been a busy one. Today, I volunteered at the neighborhood school for a couple of hours. Then I set off to enjoy my day.
Well, family bought me a raspberry something cake by La Rocca. I chose it. I decided that I wanted to be open to new experiences and so why not try a cake that I've never tasted before. After all, you had to try something once to know whether you liked it. That was the beginning.
So, I got the cake and a nice bottle of White Zinfandel wine. I just adore sweet wine although this is not as sweet as I remember. Guess I've moved on.
Anyway, I blew my candles out after making my wish of course and toasted with the rest of the family.
See, the thing about my getting older though is that I can't stand the way I look in my pictures now. When I was younger, I couldn't take a bad pic in my opinion. Sometimes getting older seems to suck although I wouldn't go back to eighteen again.
The thing about getting older is that with age comes a little bit more knowledge. Slowly I'm growing into the person that I want to be. I've always known what's important but I let it slip away. Truly people are the most important in this life. I'm glad that I have good people in my life.
I raise a glass to all of the birthday boys and girls today. May you be filled with all of the love from the Universe and have a blessed day.
